How r u der?


Subject: How r u der?
What would you do if every time you wanted someone they would never be there?
What would you do if for every moment you were truly happy there would be 10 moments of sadness?

What would you do if your best friend died tomorrow and you never got to tell them how you felt?
So, I just wanted to say, even if I never talk to you again in my life, you are special to me and you have made a difference in my life.

I look up to you, respect you, and truly cherish you.
Send this to all your friends, no matter how often you talk, or how close you are, and send it to the person who sent it to you.
Let old friends know you haven't forgotten them, and tell new friends you never will.
Remember, everyone needs a friend, someday you might feel like you have NO FRIENDS at all, just remember this e-mail and take comfort in knowing somebody out there cares about you and always will.

I'll Always Be There
In times of trouble,
In times of need,
If you are feeling SAD,
You can count on me.
I will give you a wink,
Until you smile,
give you a hug,
And stand by your side.
I'll be there for you till the end,
I'll always and forever, be your friend!

Wesley Eaglewings

But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall nount up with wings like eagles,
They shall runs and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 NKJV

Is the Internet safe for us?
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Everybody knows the Internet. It's great tool for education like books, music, lessons, scientific discoveries, ancient texts and literally, anything of values that can be downloaded, exchanged or passing freely using a speed of broadband.

The Internet can also be used as an instrument to exploit the very young. So, is it sage for us kids?

Adults who use the internet should always be carefull in seaching and saving their files so children could not have any access in their personal files. As kids, we should be guided in the propwe ways of seaching data and facts so as to avoid the prohibited ones. I think the best way is to have a dialog with us so we will be aware of the dangers posed by the Internet.

children like me should not tolk to strangers online. We should not give any personal information and much more, do not meet with them in person.

Technology is not a problem; technology will always evolve to fit the world's needs. Only a sustained campaign on the responsible use of technology and the internet will make a difference.
